Best Altezzas for black coupe.

I am looking into getting some altezzas for my black coupe, but all of them that i have seen to me look about as stylish as the stock lights, and some a bit uglier. I was wondering what u all think are the best altezzas for coupes out their, and if u have any pics of them installed?

It's all about your own taste. Do you want something stealthy or something a little bit more flashy?

go with carbon fiber on a black car, or stay with the stock tails

If I would have bougth a black civic, I would, with no hesitation, put carbon fiber tail's and carbon fiber projector headlights. If you really want to stand out, get the Euro Gen. 2....just go to ebay.com and type in something like : 2001 Civic taillights

for some reason the carbon fibers dont look that nice to me. The differnce from black to the carbon, although small, looks messed. If it had just black housing i think that would look real nice.

to me the best thing to do is go down to a Lexus Dealership and buy the black housing Altezza's off of a IS300
which im bout to do. It'll look hella clean cuz the back of our cars looks like them anyway so minor modification
but you gotta make 2 holes for those 2 trunk lights. in the end it'll look sick but sumwha costly 650 juss for lights
and soon imma buy the front IS300 lights and become a 2002 CIVIC 300 !!!!!!

Check out these TYC tails, they look pretty good and not too many people have them. I have a black '02 Ex, and I'm stuck between the TYC's and CF. Personally, I think either one would look fairly nice.
